Amazing food and service. I always feel like they really get it to ensure no cross contamination. And the food is delicious. While I usually eat dinner (gf fish and chips anyone?) here it is also an awesome location for breakfast early morning in the airport. So much better than cold eggs and bars and the other limited airport gf offerings.
Staff very knowledgeable and helpful. Huge menu if you have a gluten allergy. Even able to handle my gluten , egg, and butter allergy. Definitely felt like I was in good hands. They went completely above and beyond. Best meal I’ve had in awhile. Waitress Ellery M and General Manager five stars. Thank you!
Love this legal! It’s in terminal C of the philly airport and I enjoyed a quick meal of fish and chips there before my flight. The manager brings out all gluten free foods and they handle celiac so well.
Amazing! I cannot have dairy as well and they made my meal gluten AND dairy free. They have a dedicated fryer. Had fried calamari and fish and chips with fries! Wonderful to find a place to eat fried food and have a ton of choices!! Crazy that this is available at an airport!
Great options for GF! They have dedicated fryers and workspace. The manager,David, served my food personally to assure me all was safe for me. GF breads and rolls, GF fish, bacon etc Can’t say enough good about it and it’s in an airport!!!
All GF fryers, finally got to have the fried seafood I've been missing! GF rolls are also good.
Even fried foods are gluten free!!!! Freaking awesome. 90% of the menu we can eat!!! Awesome.
Huge gluten free menu!!! I had fish and chips!
My daughter who has Celiac had fish and chips and onion stings for the first time ever!! The fried calamari was also amazing! They use chick pea flour to fry everything so all fried food is gluten free. She had a fried food frenzy which she never has had in her entire life and loved it!! The waiter was so kind and knowledgeable it was awesome!!!
Super yummy. I have found legal seafood to be universally wonderful and taking celiac and food allergies seriously. I was in a rush but was quickly provided with super yummy fried shrimp and fries all GF to go. Before my international flight this was a must!
Amazing menu for gluten free! Sitting here now and thrilled... so hard to eat in airports usually!
Happy with my visit. I had a crabmeat sandwich (because it was $10 cheaper than a lobster sandwich). It came on a soft, warm, flaky GF bun. I'm told the fries are safe, but I think they serve some other breaded and fried things. Regular menu is clearly marked with things that are or can be made GF. Much appreciated! Many options. Sandwiches are reasonably priced . (Most are $15-25). Some reviewer said the whole kitchen is GF. That's not true.
Awesome and knowledgable
Great experience. They've actually made their entire trying operation gluten free now to streamline their kitchen. So the menu of options is extensive including fries, fish and chips, etc. very knowledgeable and conscientious staff.
Excellent service. Very careful with allergies when preparing your order. Ellery J. Is very friendly and checks on you often.
Great service!! The chef came out and assured us they took every precaution they could! The fryer does not have gluten items Fried in it so you can have the French fries or the onion strings! I had the grilled shrimp, French fries and polenta no problems! (And some of my husbands onion strings - they made his meal gf too so that I could have some of his!)
Wow all the staff including the chef who came out and the person who bright the food make sure they confirmed it was all gluten free! Excellent foods too!!
Delicious GF food and so many options! Read more: http://glutenfreecarolinagirl.com/2015/07/20/gluten-free-at-legal-sea-foods/
Awesome! GF menu and well trained staff.
It was so good to eat out at a restaurant where they care about their seafood AND patrons with allergies! I had the first fried seafood since being diagnosed celiac. And it was excellent! The wait staff was exceptional and they sympathetically understood celiac disease! We WILL find a way to eat there again!
Good place to have breakfast. They replace the contaminated potatoes by fruits.
Excellent - knowledgable and exceptionally accommodating of celiac-ers! Would eat here again in a heartbeat.
Great for breakfast too!
excellent service and food. make sure you have time as they sanitize the equipment before they cook food. everyone was knowledgeable and happy to help.
Excellent attention and great food!
Took my celiac daughter here and she had a great dinner. We were so surprised when they brought just-baked gluten free rolls to the table - - she was in heaven! She had grilled scallops with the garlic/leek brown rice and spinach and did not get sick.
At first there was a bit of confusion with the waiter but afterwards, the manager came to see us and assured the fish&chips would be 100% safe. So I had that and they topped it with their onion strings and even served us a cup of their chowder! Totally recommend!
This was the third legal I ate at in one East Coast vacation haha! Be warned, the portions are HUGE here. Fish and chips consisted of three huge slices of fish on a mound of onion rings that rivaled Mount Everest! (Just kidding- but it was way too much food. My mom and I wished I had split a dish). It was a stop off the highway in Warwick and we enjoyed their gf bread. Totally felt safe.
Make this a priority when visiting DC! This place is so effing good! A woman certified in gf food cam out and delivered our food and assured us the entire kitchen staff was very aware and making accommodations based on my allergy. I had fish and chips. This is not a a joke, I had the most delicious fish and chips ever. I still can’t believe it was gf and that amazing. If you don’t go here you are an idiot. For real.
Not symptomatic so I can't speak to safety other than how reassured I felt. The person I spoke to on the phone was not very helpful, seemed to be guessing what was gluten free. Once I spoke to the manager I felt much better. I was relieved to hear there was a separate fryer. I did a take out order and when I walked in, I asked for the manager, Richard, who I had spoken to on the phone. He was very nice and very reassuring that he would keep my little boy safe. The fries were good.
I’ve been coming here during market for years....this year...it has really changed....very inflexible....also changed my normal dish....then told me they didn’t....now you know us gluten free folks are TOTALLY AWARE OF OUR FOOD. the bread that used to be amazing was less than acceptable tonight....I doubt I’ll make it back...very sad...
Fantastic choice for celiac sufferers. My husband and I shared “Dragon roll” sushi and they left all sauces on side and left crispy wontons (which contain gluten) on side in a cup for my husband (who can eat them)... then I had mahi mahi tortillas- minus tortilla—- they put them in lettuce wraps and made them gluten free... and we finished with gf chocolate dipped ice cream bon bons (gf)... they went out of their way to assist me... and it was delicious 👍👍👍 We are regulars and I highly recommend.
5 minutes after sitting down, my celiac daughter ate a gluten roll that the waitress brought to our table. This was after explaining we had celiac and her promising us GF rolls. She only ate one bite but only because I looked at the next table and realized they had the same rolls. The waitress (and manager) said “Oops. Sorry”. We did not eat there and wouldn’t recommend any other celiac eating their either.
Menu is clearly marked w/ what items are or can be made gluten free. They use a corn mixture for frying instead of regular flour which was a nice surprise. Unfortunately our waiter was very arrogant and condescending to our questions about cross contamination and ensuring my meal was safe. The food was tasty (gf rolls were excellent!) Chowder was delicious - tasted just like clam chowder but w/ the consistency of a noodle soup almost. Fried fish platter was also very good and crispy. Nima tested the bread to ensure it was safe and it passed. Ate and did not get sick - unfortunately the waiter’s overall attitude put a damper on the experience. Would definitely return but request another service. Overall, excellent food and it’s safe.
Staff was extremely knowledgeable about gluten free/celiac preparation. The server went above and beyond to explain things to me in a way that made me feel comfortable. The food was delicious. There was only one downside, but it was a big one. Fifteen minutes after putting the first bite of food in my mouth I was sick in the bathroom. I had a strong reaction to something there... I had the gluten free rolls before my meal, then had the gluten free fish and chips (fries). It also came with fried onion rings on top. They were aware of my “allergy” so I’m not really sure what specifically caused the reaction, but something must’ve slipped thru the cracks. All of their batters were supposed to be gluten free so I didn’t think twice about eating the fried food. The food was so good and they seemed so knowledgeable I would honestly try them again the next time I’m in Atlanta. Accidents happen, and if it was just an isolated mistake I would still like to try a lot of items on their menu. They told me the owner had celiac and they go to great lengths to make sure it’s prepared celiac friendly, but I guess there are no guarantees.
I've never had a bad experience at Legal Seafoods and this location was no different. Server asked right away about allergies, even before I mentioned gf. They brought out gf rolls that were delicious. I got fried haddock that was very tasty and fresh. When I verified they still had a gf fryer the server told me all their friend seafood is gluten free. A different employee brought my plate out separately and told me she was the allergy runner and that my meal was gluten free. Service and food were both great.
This place is amazing!! Brown rice batter for fried calamari, gluten free buns for sandwiches. Most of the menu can be made gluten free. The staff is very knowledgeable. They have a completely separate kitchen for gluten free orders, plus the chef will come out and talk to you about the meal to make you feel even more safe. I will be back.
Staff very knowledgeable about GF - GF rolls brought out and my questions about cross contamination where answered respectfully. Kitchen staff brought out my food separately and explained how it was prepared and cooked separately. I’ve never felt more confident in food I didn’t cook myself! I’m very sensitive to gluten and had absolutely no problems.
Legal is my number one, always safe option. Tell the waitstaff that you have celiac disease as soon as they seat you because they'll heat up delicious gluten free rolls that are made by a nearby bakery, Something Sweet Without Wheat. Legal has strict protocols in place for dealing with customers with celiac. My food is always served to me by the manager, who always assures me that no gluten has come anywhere near my food. And in the dozens of times I've eaten there, it never has.
Our server, Michael, was well-informed about what was safe and what wasn’t. The menu is clearly marked. They even brought GF bread. The food wasn’t mind-blowing, but I was excited to be able to eat fish and chips and calamari, which hardly ever happens.
